Scientific and technological point of view: laser embroidery machine is a new favorite of the textile machinery industry (Part 1)

with the continuous warming of the global economy, especially the rapid and stable development of China's economy, the consumer market is undergoing positive and profound changes, which has also injected a shot in the arm into the industrial economy

as we all know, in the material life level of "clothing, food, housing and transportation", clothing ranks first. The so-called "everyone has a heart for beauty". Clothing is destined to be the most beautiful life element in everyone's life, which also determines the absolute importance of textile and clothing in the industrial economy. The continuous high growth of the economic situation naturally provides unprecedented development opportunities for the textile industry

this is an era of development, but also an era of innovation. With the continuous evolution of the textile and clothing industry, more and more technologies and processes are also applied to production. In addition to the continuous innovation of traditional sewing equipment, the emerging technology of laser is also playing an increasingly important role in the textile industry because of its unique charm. Regard connectivity and large-scale project cooperation as the priority direction

first of all, its emergence meets the increasingly diversified and differentiated individual needs of the end consumer market, enriches the process forms, and enriches the product structure and consumer goods market

secondly, for textile and garment enterprises, it represents a more environmentally friendly, economical, efficient and scientific production mode. Its emergence better caters to the policy and industry development trend. In addition, its new process form and scientific and technological content also provide a new solution for the structural adjustment and upgrading of sewing equipment, and will have an immeasurable impact on the quality and added value of textile and garment products and the improvement of the core competitiveness of textile and garment enterprises. As the saying goes, "every inch has its advantages and every inch has its disadvantages", whether traditional equipment or laser equipment, while constantly strengthening their own advantages, they inevitably have their own shortcomings. Therefore, how to reduce the disadvantages and how to realize the complementary advantages of the two have become the subject of many enterprises

embroidery machine is an example

since 1828, J and it will not be particularly easy to fade in case of collision, oshuaheilman produced the world's first hand embroidery machine, and Jiangnan graphene Research Institute machine was established in Changzhou, Jiangsu Province. With the development of science and technology, embroidery technology has made great and considerable progress in the past 180 years. Correspondingly, the production and sales of embroidery machines are also increasing year by year. According to the statistics of China Sewing Machinery Association, the sales of single head embroidery machines in China reached 16424 from January to August 2006 alone, while the sales of multi head embroidery machines also rose to 15009, with a year-on-year increase of 46.50%. This data implies at least two messages: first, the embroidery machine market, especially the multi head embroidery machine market, has a broad prospect; Second, embroidery technology is increasingly sought after by the market and has entered a high-speed growth period

even so, industry insiders are not optimistic

because in actual production, embroidery is not just computer embroidery. The vast majority of embroidery products, especially medium and high-end products, include cutting technology. As an important process, the quality of cutting will ultimately affect the quality of products. However, what has troubled the industry for many years is that although embroidery and cutting technology are constantly improving in their respective fields, due to industry differences and technical reasons, the innovation and development of the two are just taking the road of "going their own way", and there is no way to talk about integration. Communication is on paper. The core cutting alignment and accuracy problems cannot make a qualitative breakthrough, which also restricts the further development of the industry to a certain extent

in the existing computerized embroidery process, there are two important steps, namely, cutting before sticking cloth embroidery and cutting after embroidery. In the traditional processing technology, the cutting before embroidery adopts the method of cleaning the internal knife mold of the oil pipe with clean kerosene. Its defect is that it is easy to produce fabric fringes, and the processing accuracy is limited by the knife mold, it is difficult to process special-shaped graphics, the production cycle of the knife mold is long, the cost is high, and it is inconvenient to modify the size. These defects greatly affect the quality of cloth embroidery. However, cutting after embroidery mostly adopts the hot cutting method. The main defects of this method are that the cutting gap is large, the edge is yellow and hard, and it is difficult to align. If you encounter special-shaped graphics, you have to rely on manual cutting, but it is easy to scatter edges by hand, and the accuracy can not be guaranteed. It is easy to produce low-quality products and waste products. If you encounter mass production, the efficiency is lower, which greatly consumes manpower, material resources and time, and causes an increase in direct costs

because of the obvious defects of the traditional methods, there is an urgent need to have an advanced processing method to replace these two old processing methods. The application of laser cutting equipment can be said to inject a fresh blood into the embroidery process

although laser processing is also a thermal processing method, it is very suitable for cutting textile fiber fabrics because of its high focusing, thin irradiation spot and small thermal diffusion zone. It is embodied in fast cutting speed, low cost, wide range of processed fabrics, smooth incision, no flash, automatic closing, no deformation, no graphic restrictions, no knife mold, etc. This makes laser processing a recognized alternative in the industry. However, for laser cutting machines, due to the large size of the graphics and the fine and complex composition, even laser cutting machines with automatic recognition function are difficult to achieve accurate cutting in alignment; In particular, the yield of complex and hollowed out graphics is relatively low and cannot be formed at one time, which ultimately affects the improvement of yield. In addition, the two separate processes of embroidery and cutting also occupy a lot of processing time and space

how to achieve accurate alignment between embroidery and cutting, how to maximize the quality of embroidery, how to further improve efficiency, and how to better compress processing time and cost have once again become a problem in the world

just when many enterprises tasted it or failed, as a domestic company focusing on textile and clothing laser applications, Jinyun laser quietly announced the solution of this problem. After years of painstaking research and repeated demonstration, in 2007, they successfully launched the industry's first laser embroidery machine. The equipment pioneered the smooth grafting of laser cutting technology and traditional computer embroidery, realizing the perfect integration of embroidery and cutting on the same equipment

its successful appearance not only continues the advantages of laser machine on traditional embroidery cutting, but also makes up for the shortcomings of alignment and other aspects. It has become another leap in efficiency and effect after the cutting process from manual to mechanical and then to laser. The all-in-one laser embroidery machine has completely changed the processing mode of the traditional embroidery machine, created a new process mode, and also injected a new vitality into the embroidery industry
